When we talk about making money, the internet has become one major source of income opportunity in Nigeria and around the world.
With the present situation in Nigeria and around the world. It has become a necessity to seek alternative means of making money than the usual day to day work.

Identifying Fraud and Scams When Making Money Online.
Unfortunately, there are millions of scam posts on social media and as such people lose their hard earned money.
It gives me concern as to how people fall easily to hype posts telling people they can earn $10,000 with little or no capital.
Every sensible person will not fall for such schemes but there are still those who fall prey to such schemes.
When you see posts and articles that tell you you can make $10,000 weekly without investment or $10, you should know that it is not real. Those are scam posts to lure unsuspecting internet users.
If you want to make money online, one thing you need to know is this: you cannot make money online without spending money. Truth is you need money to make money. Anyone who tells you you can make money without spending money run. Because even in Freetown nothing is free.
Whenever you come in contact with a business that promises huge return on investment with little or no capital. Know that, it is either a high yield investment program (HYIP) that would make you lose money or program that will only waste your time and data.
Is it Possible to Make Money Online While You Sleep?
However, in this post I will not be teaching you a high yield investment program that will make you lose money or make you rich over night.
I want to teach you how to create an online business for yourself that will keep bringing money to you even when you are sleeping.
You may ask if it is possible to make money when you sleep. The answer is yes but know that you must have the strong will to succeed. Many make money online while others struggle. The truth is, you need to master the art of money online in Nigeria.
There are several opportunities online and I will be giving you a few of them so you choose the ones suitable for you.
That said, let’s look at some of the ways you can make money online Nigeria.
Ways to Make Money Online.
1. Blogging: I term blogging the mother of online business. With a blog, you can do anything and make money online, ranging from selling your own products, Affiliate products, digital products, freelancing and more. You can also render services to others and get paid in return.
Another reason why you need a blog is this: when you get clients that need your services, they might want to know your website, so they can visit your site and see things for themselves. The information they get from your site will make them want to do business with you.
Let me give you my personal experience.
It was on the 1st of January 2020, when I got a WhatsApp message from someone. The man is a lawyer and a presidential aspirant during the last election in Nigeria 2019. He also has a business school in Lagos.
He said in the chat “Madam, I want to know about your business. Can I come to your office or can you come my office?”
With all pleasure, I said, I would come. So he asked me to see him the next day being 2nd January. At the end of our meeting he gave me 2 websites to design for him.
When I completed the website, he was so impressed with my work that he gave me a contract to mange his website for 2 years.
Now during one of my discussions with him, he asked of I could publish a article on yoghurt making. I was surprised how he knew about my article on yogurt making. So I asked him how he knew about my articlel on yoghurt. It was then he told me he made a research online and saw my profile and all the things I do online.
It is therefore important for you to have a blog to begin with. There are many things I will like to talk about on blogging but because of time and space I will refer you to another post I’ve written on blogging.
In it you will understand what a blog is and what blogging is. You will also learn how to create a blog. (Don’t worry, if there is anything you don’t understand, you can contact me and I will be glad to put you through).

Some affiliate companies offer 100, 50, 20 or 10% as the case may be.
One way to promote your business as an affiliate marketer is to create a blog, give it a befitting name and publish articles on your blog about the products.

There are many goods that people need but they don’t know such goods exist. If you are able to discover such goods and you ship them to Nigeria. You will make huge profit from such goods.
This also brings us back to blogging. Though, you can sell your imported items without a blog. Creating a blog will help you earn residual income, as an online entrepreneur.
You can copy or download images of your goods and publish short and powerful articles about them. Publish them on your blog and share them on social media and get tons of visitors to your blog, who could become regular customers.
